Book Review-Cream Puff Murder: A Seagrass Sweets Cozy Mystery (Book 1)-Sandi Scott

Monday, June 19, 2017

Another recommendation from an author I love, Dianne Harman.

You are not going to be able to guess who was able to use one of Ashley Adams Cream Puffs to murder a guest that was attending one of the first large catering jobs of Ashley's new business. She returned from France with another chef, Patti and together they were taking the small town by storm--until the murder occurred.

There are several suspects but Ashley really can't decide--she just knows there is something she is missing!

Ashley gets an old friend, Ryan, to help her solve this mystery. Of course she really likes Ryan but is afraid to ruin their friendship by allowing the relationship to go any further--Ryan is interested--but is too shy to say anything!!

I think I may have to read Book 2 ro see if these two ever actually get together or just stay friends!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

This is Book 1 in the *new* Seagrass Sweets cozy mystery series.

BONUS: Recipe included.

Ashley Adams is settling back into her life in Seagrass, TX after leaving a broken heart and criminal ex-boyfriend in Paris, France. Her French sweets catering company has finally landed a major job, making Ashley grateful for all that is going right – her business, her work partnership, and reconnecting with an old friend Ryan.

All that changes when Ashley overhears one of the guests arguing with a strange man in the bathroom. Things get worse when the woman is found dead the next day, poisoned by one of Ashley’s cream puffs.

Ashley must solve the mystery to save the reputation of her nascent business. She is thrust into the lives of people from her past who all have something to hide. Is the murderer a jealous lover? An out-of-towner with business interests? A local hero turned criminal? Teaming up with her old friend Ryan and her loyal dog Dizzy, Ashley sets out to solve the crime.

Will she be able to solve the murder before her business reputation is completely ruined?

I think Ashley and Ryan will get together. The cover made me hungry, can you tell I'm dieting? Murder even happens in glorious food events, are there no boundaries? I'd love to find out the who done it. This sounds like an interesting read.
